Boweden will serve on QCC’s 11-member Board of Trustees acting as a representative for the college’s student body. Student trustees are elected to the Board for a one-year term. As the student trustee, Boweden will also serve on the college’s Strategic Planning Committee.

“If you look at our campus you can see it is very inclusive, diverse and has a fine infrastructure. The college is so successful in developing academic programs and I would like to help take that even further by enhancing the student experience and increasing extra-curricular activities,” Boweden said. “When students have other things to do in addition to academics, they become more vested in college and that can help with retention. We already have more resources than a lot of other community colleges and I’d like to increase this.”
